So much happens each and every week that itâ€™s hard to keep up sometimes. Here are some of the tabs that are open in my browser this morning along with some random thoughtsâ€¦.
Itâ€™s hard to believe that itâ€™s August already. Where has the time gone? My youngest has to return to school in just over a week. Itâ€™s been nice having her around the house for the summer. Thereâ€™s no bedtime, thereâ€™s no specific time that she has to get up, meal times are flexible, and so on. Iâ€™m already looking forward to Christmas vacation.
The coffee mug below comes straight from a little shop in Ocean Shores, Washington. My family and I spent a few days vacationing in Washington state this summer and we came across a little shop where the artisan had her hand-crafted items for sale. Itâ€™s hard to see in the photo, but the mug sports various shades of blues and dark reds. Itâ€™s really quite pretty. Ocean Shores turned out to be a nice place to spend a couple of days. The ocean along with cool temperatures and overcast skies were a nice break from the 100 plus degree heat we were experiencing here in the Central Valley of California at the time.
